"Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:12-13 (NIV)
Sometimes prayer becomes the thing we do or the phrases we say when we need to sound spiritual. Let me tell you, I’m speaking from experience here!
I fully believe God listens to all our prayers, just as today’s verse says. However, it also suggests there is more to the relationship between Creator and creation than just an occasional chat. The verse also says we gain something.
When we seek the Lord with all our heart, we are given the ultimate treasure and source of life: We gain God Himself.
The Lord allows Himself to be found by those who embark on a persistent pursuit of Him.
As we seek Him, He reveals more of Himself. He is faithful to His faithful ones, and He will grow them and lead them as they prove themselves faithful to Him.
“The eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.” (2 Chronicles 16:9)
Keep praying, dear mama. Keep seeking God’s will and ways so that you may be led into His perfect will.
God hears and will answer your prayers. But there is something He wants to teach you about Himself. He longs to impress His intimate care for you into the depths of your heart.
Long for His touch. Search for His presence. He will never leave a woman on a quest for more of Him
Seek the Lord with all your heart, and He will let you find Him as your greatest treasure and reward, your source of life.
